design process

I have been asked a couple of times before about my design
process, so here is an example.
This is a case where I scan the actual drawing, as opposed to
doing the whole thing in Illustrator.

I draw the idea on a paper.

Then scan it into Photoshop. Using the magic wand, I select the
lines, convert selection into points, then export to Illustrator.
There's probably a better way to do this but I only know this way.

In Illustrator, I manipulate the image.

The final design. Sorry about the fuzzy image. I don't know why I took a photo of the desktop, when I could just saved the desktop image using the image capture thing.
Anyway, from this, I will send the files to be made into
polymer plates. We'll be printing the actual card soon...
